At The Salt Lake Tribune, Brian Maffly reports on Orrin Hatch’s funeral:

“Because of his deep-seated faith and belief in the goodness of humankind, he always reached out to those in need, whether they be powerful and wealthy or downtrodden and tempest-tossed. He believed in the power of civility and the essential goodness of the American people,” said his longtime friend A. Scott Anderson, a prominent Utah banking executive. “He was a man of strong principles who had a habit of making friends with everyone, including adversaries. He was the go-to guy to fight for things people needed to grow and thrive.”
